Report From Part One [Inscribed]

Detroit: Broadside Press, 1972. First edition (stated first printing). 8vo. Blue cloth stamped in gilt on front board and spine; lacking a jacket as issued (reportedly only the 1973 second printing had a jacket). 215pp., with 12 leaves of b&w plates at center. Signed and inscribed by Brooks to the half-title: "For Paul, Sincerely Gwendolyn Brooks." Mild rubbing to front board gilt; one photo plate dog-eared to accommodate overcut printing error; slight foxing to tops of plates. Very good or better.

A collection of autobiographical writings by the celebrated American poet Gwendolyn Brooks (1917-2000), a vital contributor to the Blacks Art Movement. Contents include the titular memoir, an account of a 1971 trip to Africa, three interviews, and a one-page biography of her deceased dog Fluffy. With prefaces by Don L. Lee and George Kent.
